The Pacific Northwest LNG project was announced in 2013; a $36 billion gas project that’s an extension of the Petronas Company. It would export 19 million tons a year of liquefied gas to markets in Asia, while contributing more than 5 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, annually. This project would be beneficial to Canada’s economy and as such, the Liberals have granted approval, alongside the federal government of British Columbia, who has granted conditional approval of the LNG project.

Of course not, because often times the veteran would end up taking his own life due to the mental disorder.
